小编摘要:看过了范例(一),是不是已经有些胸有成竹了呢?让我们再接再厉,更多的学习优秀口语范例。别忘了自己先实战演练以后再研读范例哟。

 Q:Choose an object you like and explain why it is of special value to you. Please include specific examples and details in your explanation.
A:I’d like to talk about the cellphone I bought two years ago. I spent my first month’s salary on it and I felt happy.
It is an NEC with a wid range of functions. Besides the normal functions like making telephone calls, sending messages, checking the calendar and the time, taking memos, it has an easy wireless access to the Internet, through which I can search the latest information and even chat with my friends.
Other than that, it can also be used to watch TV, take photos and consult new words in an English-Chinese dictionary, which is very convenient for an English learner.
What’s more, it looks beautiful. It has a large screen, with a good color combination of black and silver.
In a word, I like it a lot because it’s so useful and brings me much convenience.
Q:Some people tend to judge a person on the basis of first observation. Some people believe it takes a long time to know a person well. Which approach to knowing people do you think is better and why?
A:In my point of view, I don’t think judging a person on the basis of first observation is generally correct.
First of all, a person usually tries to appear nicer than he or she really is when first meeting someone. Some even pretend to be good on purpose.
Second, good looks doesn’t necessarily match good character. People should be wise to realize the possibilities of false impressions they may have at the first glance. In fact, a person’s character can be fairly judged through careful observation ‘cause the true character can only be revealed in the person’s reactions to different events.
It takes time to get to know someone and find out the real personality. Therefore, judging a person by the appearance is often wrong.
Q:If you get a chance to choose a job, what will you do? What’s your reason for choosing this job?
Please include specific examples and details in your explanation.
A:If I could freely choose any job, I would choose a job where I could do something constructive and beneficial for ordinary people. Definitely it would be something helping people.
Teaching of course is sort of that kind of job-if you do it properly you can certainly help people. Traditionally in China teachers have been very respected; we have a saying a teacher for a day is a father for life.
Nowadays, attitudes are changing, and perhaps people are more realistic. But my dream isn’t changing. I wouldn’t be helping them materially but I could give them a lot of pleasure and lighten their days.
I love teaching and I want it to be my whole life’s career ‘cause I feel I really am contributing something to people’s lives, to help them.
Q:If you unexpectedly receive a large amount of money, what will you do with it? Would you spend it for practical purpose or simply for fun? State your opinion and explain your reasons.5 j$
A:If I got a lot of money, the first thing I would like to do is to go for overseas study. I have always wanted to finish my university in a different country. When I was in junior high, one of my classmates got a chance to go to the USA. At that time there were not many families who could afford their child to do that. To me, it was also a dream, and the dream has been planting in my mind until today. Therefore, I would definitely do this first if I had enough money. Then, I would give the rest of the money to my parents so that they could live a better and easier life. These two things above are what I really would like to do if I had a lot of money.
Q:Which place is your favorite place when you were a child? Describe it and explain why you liked to go there.
A:When I was young, the place I most liked to go is the beach I live close to.
I love nature----white, powdery sand along crystal-clear waters, palm trees for shade, and the sea breeze are all the things that I really appreciate.
Besides, I could do a lot of things there. There were many fun and athletic activities available. I learned how to swim there and building sand castles is my favorite activity. When the weather was awsome, I just lay on the beach and enjoyed the sun.
Also I made my childhood friends there and we still keep in touch to this day. It is the place that brought me a lot of wonderful memories and that’s why I loved to go there.
Q:Compared with science and math study, the study of art and literature is not very important. Do you agree or disagree?
A:Many people may think that studying science and math is more beneficial. However, I do believe that art and literature also have their own importance on our lives.
To begin with, our life relies a great deal on such subjects as art and literature. Many aspects of our lives need to be treated by art and literature. As human beings, we have feelings and emotions which are expected to be cared for. That’s why we have music, movies, books, paintings, sculptures for us to relax, enjoy, enlighten our mind and refresh our soul.
Apart from that, I believe that some people are born with scientific ability while others are born with literary talents. So let a scientist do the research, and let a painter paint.
Q:Describe a work of art, such as a song, poem or painting, which has made a lasting impression on you. Please explain the impression and include specific examples and details in your explanation.
A:I’d like to talk about a painting that comes to my mind first---Mona Lisa, an oil painting by the famous Italian artist Leonardo da Vinci.
Actually I’ve never seen the original painting, but I remember the first time I saw its reproduction was when I was in elementary school. The picture is really amazing. The painting shows a woman looking out at the viewer with an “enigmatic smile” (神秘的微笑). When you look at her, no matter where you stand, you’ll find her looking at you and smiling at you.
My arts teacher told us that Mona Lisa is perhaps the most famous piece in art history and is, perhaps the most widely known portrait in the western world. It’s so different from the paintings of Chinese style. My teacher also told us that we could learn a lot about other cultures from painting, which I believe is quite true.
Q:Some people prefer to keep reading a new book until it is finished. Others prefer to stop reading whenever they lose interest. Which method of reading do you think is better and why?
A:In my opinion, I like to keep reading a new book until it is finished.
This way, I can develop a new ability to maintain focus. Reading at parts kind of gets boring. It’s true that there are some people who start a book and never finish it and then switch to another book and never complete it either.
Normally, people stop reading when they lose interest ‘cause they think if they continue, it won’t be of any help but annoyance. On the contrary, when you keep reading and afterwards you’ll find it’s going to get interesting. Gradually you’ll renew enthusiasm for reading, and thus form a good habit of reading.
Therefore, I would rather be a sequential finisher than a scattered reader.
Q:Describe the most disappointing event in your life and explain why you were disappointed. Please include specific details in your explanation.
A:I went to the Nordstrom store at Xidan, which is about an hour’s subway ride away from my home. I bought some perfume and some skin care products and I also asked for the perfume atomizer (喷雾器) bottle.
When I got home, I opened the perfume box, finding out that the sales rep (representative的简称) gave me the wrong bottle. It was the large bottle that wasn't an atomizer and wasn't refillable. I was very upset, as now I would have to make another 2-hour round trip if I wanted to return the product for the correct one. I have decided that I would just keep the bottle I purchased and not deal with the hassle (麻烦 trouble) of the long ride back to the store.
I was very surprised at my experience considering I have friends that rave about (对。。。着迷get mad/wild about) the knowledgeable, friendly and helpful service they get at Nordstrom's. I hope Nordstrom gets back to the good customer service they have always been known for.
Q:Some people have a few favorite foods that they eat most of the time. Others are always trying new dishes and styles of cooking. Which do you prefer and why?
A:Some people eat a few favorite foods most of the time ‘cause they do not feel their favorites, like great music, should be changed. But I I've always loved to discover new dishes and cuisines and I would like to have the opportunity to try different types of ethnic foods so that I can get a better understanding of the food culture. Maybe I’ll find some new favorites.
In addition, I love trying new things and experimenting ‘cause this is exciting for me. More importantly, this way I can enrich my dining experience and improve the overall dining quality.
Furthermore,various dishes represent different nationalities. And owing to the versatility (多样性),I can become a bit more creative in the kitchen.
Since the world offers us these different styles, why not try them?
